Everton Legends Neville Southall & Kevin Ratcliffe show at Southport ‘Atkinson'(December 12th 2014).

Kevin Ratcliffe promises a lively evening when he joins his fellow Everton and Wales legend Neville Southall on stage at Southport’s Atkinson Theatre in December.

“With Big Nev around you can be certain the verbal sparks will fly, “ says Ratcliffe. “He stops shows just like he stopped shots playing behind me. It’ll be quite an experience for everyone because Neville has never been slow to voice his opinions and I’ll be having my say as well !.”

The two Goodison greats, linchpins of Howard Kendall’s glorious side of the 1980s, will join Southport-based writer and broadcaster John Keith for An Audience With Everton Legends on Friday, December 12, when they will talk frankly and revealingly about their careers and football in general.

Ratcliffe, the most successful captain in Everton history and one of the quickest centre backs the British game has seen, led the club to two League titles, the FA Cup and the European Cup Winners Cup.

His club and country colleague Southall, rated at his peak as the world’s greatest goalkeeper, shared in those triumphs as well as landing another FA Cup medal under Joe Royle in 1995. His Everton career spanned 17 seasons in which he set a club record 751 senior appearances and a Wales record 92 caps.

The pair will answer audience questions after the show for what is sure to be a night of blue remembered thrills.

Tickets, at £14, available in person from The Atkinson box office or by calling 01704 533333. Or go to: www.theatkinson.co.uk
